His face could have done with a touch up.
I got 20km past Laura before I decided that the 17" front and road tyres on the Versys and the Peninsula Development Rd wasn't a great combo. So I don't consider myself hardcore. I reckon you need a degree of prep for up there!
Years ago I felt very brave and took myself past the "4WD only" sign on Kings Tablelands Rd in my GH Sigma with a turn back policy for when it got too rough. I soon discovered myself at McMahons Lookout enjoying the vista of Lake Burragorang. I've not trusted those "4WD only" signs since.
That's so funny. Last year I was at Cameron Corner for the night and I dropped into the bar to have a cold one.. There were 3 old couples holding court there, all in their matching RM Williams gear, hats and all. When I turned up in my riding pants, T shirt and thongs cut down so they'd fit in my pack, one of the old carnts, being totally original commented, "Motorbike eh, temporary Australian, haw, haw, haw". I replied that I didn't know what was temporary about it, I'd been riding for over 50 years and I was still OK.
The next morning, somewhere near Merty Merty I met one of the couples again. Their hitch had broken. The tongue had broken at the bend. I asked them what they were going to do and he said he'd have to wait until someone comes along to help.
I asked him if he had a satellite phone, no, would he like to use mine to call for help ? He didn't, commenting that I was well prepared. I said " I might only be temporary but I like to cover my arse as much as possible". Then I rode off after first checking that they had sufficient water, unable to help further.
4WD drivers and the PDR. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
For every 1 seasoned 4WD driver (and you can pick them) there are a 1000 f@#kwit weekend wannabes on that road with a death wish (and some succeed, just check out how many 4wd's are on their roof) and don't give a f@#k about anyone else and in my experience it's just about everywhere in Australia not just the PDR.
Funny thing is though on some of the rougher tracks in more remote areas I hardly ever see a 4wd.
Just found this.....
Who's the fucking dibbee dobber?
Whoever it is he ain’t too bright.
I’ve just recently done the PDR. Those rolled vehicles are certainly a good reminder of what those roads can do to you.
I was in a 4wd and was glad that I was even though you can get to the tip in a 2wd( while I was there a bloke showed up in a little bubble/town car type of thing. A few weeks earlier though and I doubt he would have got through.
I was happy to cruise around 80 km/h but plenty were going past me at at least 100.
